Top Action Movies: Actor Mark Wahlberg's Best Roles

Marky Mark’s top 10 films will inspire you to not only get in shape, but also to never give up when the going gets tough.

The Other Guys (2010)

While playing detective Terry Hoitz, partner to detective Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell), Mark Wahlberg shows off his ability to blend action and comedy in The Other Guys. Hoitz is relegated to office work after accidentally shooting Derek Jeter during the World Series, leaving him anxious to get back out into the field, and jealous of the cocky, fearless-but-reckless detective duo (played by The Rock and Samuel L. Jackson) idolized by everyone else in the department. Hoitz eventually gains back some trust from his higher-ups as he follows Gamble on an investigation of a multi-billion dollar embezzlement plot reminiscent of the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme. As a result, Hoitz gets to take part in the car chases and dangerous action sequences he craves, comically dragging the less reckless Gamble along for every twist and turn. Wahlberg’s Best Role Play Wahlberg shows he can be a less serious action hero, as many scenes serve to parody other action flicks.
